Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), the national Tea Party movement star who is on the verge of announcing a run for president, is also reportedly set to have some top-flight talent heading up her campaign: Longtime Republican operative Ed Rollins.
Two sources close to Bachmann told CBS
that Rollins will join the campaign. Rollins was previously campaign manager for President Ronald Reagan's landslide re-election in 1984, and in 2008 he was national campaign director for the insurgent candidacy of Mike Huckabee, who won an upset victory in the Iowa caucuses.
A call by TPM to Ed Rollins's office was not immediately returned.
